Edinson Cavani ‘agrees Atletico Madrid move’

Paris Saint-Germain striker Edinson Cavani has given his approval over a move to Atletico Madrid this summer, say reports.

El Mundo Deportivo cite a report on Spanish radio station Cadena Ser that the Uruguayan will arrive at Los Rojiblancos, but only in the event of Diego Costa leaving the club this summer.

Cavani’s contract in the French capital expires next summer and he has scored 193 goals across six seasons at the French giants.

Costa has been linked with a summer move to a club from the Chinese Super League while there have been reports of a fallout with the hierarchy of Atleti.

The Spain international refused to train with his Atletico Madrid teammates once in April after the club opened misconduct proceedings into his red card at Barcelona.

That dismissal led to the former Chelsea striker missing the final eight matches of the season and leading to speculation that he had played his last competitive game for the club.

Lucas Hernandez, Diego Godin, Juanfran Torres and Antoine Griezmann have already confirmed their departures from Los Rojiblancos this summer.
